Pollen Analysis of Honey Bought from Sokoto Metropolis

ABSTRACT Microscopic  examination  of  pollen  grains  determined  the  botanical  origin  and  geographical  location  of  honey.  This study  was  aimed at  determining  the  botanical  sources  of  honey using  qualitative  and  quantitative  pollen  analysis.  Ten grams  (10g)  of  honey  was  diluted  with  8ml&nbsp...

Performance of Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) on Ferruginous Soil Amended with Poultry Manure and NPK 15:15:15 Fertilizer

AbstractLow fruit quality and yield in cucumber is linked directly to continuous cropping under poor soilfertility management practices in Nigeria. In 2014 and 2015 planting seasons, field trials wereconducted at the National Horticultural Research Institute (NIHORT), Ibadan to determineeffects of poultry manure and NPK 15:15:15 fertilizer on growth, nutrient uptake and yield ofcucumber on Ferruginous soil. Ten treatment combinations comprising two cucumber varietiesand five levels of soil am...

Morpho-Physiological Responses and Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Amelioration of Telfairia Occidentalis Hook F. to Combinational Stress

Crops are faced with several definite environmental stresses either concurrently or at different periods during their entire growth and productivity season. Combinational occurrence of stresses and pollution such as salinity stress and crude oil pollution is destructive to crop growth and productivity than these stresses occurring separately at different crop growth. This research was aimed at showing different stress combinations (salinity stress and crude oil pollution) and their impac...
